MONTGOMERY, AL (Raycom Media stations) - Jennifer D. Pouncy, 34, of Montgomery, Ala., pleaded guilty on Sept. 28, 2010, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles S. Coody to one count of conspiracy for her role in a corruption scheme relating to Monday's arrests of Victoryland owner Milton McGregor, four Alabama senators and other lobbyists and business people.

According to information stated during her plea hearing, Pouncy admitted that she offered State Senator Jim Preuitt (D) $2 million for his vote on the pro-gambling legislation, based on orders from Massey.

Pouncy also admitted that Massey and Country Crossing owner Ronny Gilley authorized her to offer $100,000 to State Senator Larry Means (D) in return for his support for the pro-gambling legislation.

Pouncy's guilty plea was unsealed Monday morning, and a sentencing date has not been set.
